L’amour des mots et des dicos

J’aime les mots. Depuis toujours. J’aime aussi les dicos depuis longtemps. Étudiante, j’en achetais dans les librairies qui vendaient des livres usagés parce que je n’avais pas les moyens de m’en acheter des neufs. Aussi, l’une des premières choses que j’ai faites lorsque j’ai gagné un salaire décent, ç’a été de m’acheter le Grand Larousse universel en 15 volumes. Chus pas une troud’cute! Plus tard, ç’a été Le Grand Robert de la langue française en 6 volumes. Voilà pour les dicos de référence de la grande langue, l’écrite, la littéraire, l’officielle, celle qu’il faut maîtriser pour ne pas avoir l’air trop troud’cute.

Mais je viens de la terre et j’ai toujours adoré la langue parlée rurale, constituée, pour beaucoup, de vieux mots. Celle de mes parents d’abord. De ma mère Maria, verbo-motrice illettrée colorée née dans un village de 10 personnes environ [une farce, mais quand même, une très petite place] littéralement assise sur la frontière américaine — en effet, certaines maisons ouvraient d’un côté au Québec et de l’autre aux États — d’un père maquignon un peu crapaud et d’une mère un peu germanique-tête-de-cochon qui s’appelait Laistre (certains de cette branche écrivent aujourd’hui leur nom Lettre). Son français s’émaillait de mots anglais… et elle l’ignorait. Par exemple, une fois arrivée en Abitibi, elle a utilisé le mot clothespin [prononcer « clôtse-pine »] pour « épingle à linge ». Elle a fait terriblement rire d’elle et a ainsi pris conscience de sa « différence » linguistique. Elle s’est appliquée par la suite à dire les mots en français.

Puis ensuite de mon père, le sage Raymond, silencieux parmi les silencieux, doux (sauf quand ma mère l’envoyait corriger celle ou celui qui avait fait quelque chose de croche), réservé, constant, travaillant, ultra religieux et conservateur, BCBG et instruit pour l’époque, en campagne, parce que né d’une mère provenant d’une lignée de maîtresses d’école (et elle-même institutrice) et de pépére Fortier, un doux Beauceron qui est monté en Abitibi pour établir ses trois fils, dont Raymond et son jumeau Gérard. Une très petite famille pour l’époque au Québec (années 1900‑1910). Le peu que Raymond disait reflétait le monde ancien de sa Beauce natale rurale. Des beaux mots roulants et érudits parfois (il ne le savait pas) comme « vasistas », qu’il utilisait pour parler de la petite fenêtre qui perçait le solage de béton de la cave ou de la beurrerie. Surprenant!

Puis j’ai aimé aussi le langage des autres parlants français, de France d’abord, en lisant des livres d’auteurs français comme Gide ou Giono, qui célébraient la nature, la terre et la vie pastorale et où j’apprenais de nombreux mots du « terroir » de nos cousins (qu’on utilisait aussi parfois), ou de San Antonio le comique dont l’argot était dur à comprendre pour une petite Québécoise (à vrai dire, je restais souvent en plan devant des mots qui ne se trouvaient pas dans le Petit Larousse illustré). Zola, Balzac et Hugo, je les ai aimés pour leur éclairage sur les classes sociales, les mœurs et la société de leur temps, le langage cru des rough and tough. J’aimais. J’adore aussi la chanson, et j’ai beaucoup écouté Brassens et Renaud (moins, mais avec toujours autant de plaisir).

Et puis j’ai connu la langue des Cadjins [on a longtemps dit Cajuns, qui est en fait la version anglaise de Cadiens*, soit les Acadiens de la Louisiane] de la Louisiane en allant enseigner le français pour le compte du CODOFIL. J’ai donc passé une année à Lafayette, logée chez un cousin Fortier de papa qui avait marié une Acadienne dont la mère parlait à peine l’anglais et dont les ancêtres avaient été déportés d’Acadie en 1755. Ceux-là « naviguaient » (ils ont les bateaux et la mer dans le sang) plutôt que conduire, et à l’Halloween, les enfants évidaient des « giraumons » plutôt que des citrouilles. Un mot français (Antilles) qu’on ne connaît pas au Québec. Des mots de mer et de terre. Savoureux!

À l’époque, les vieux français, les français régionaux ou de types différents du français normé étaient passablement méprisés et comptaient pour peu parce qu’ils reflétaient le français parlé, moins « correct » que le français écrit. Mais les choses ont changé : les régionaux ont retrouvé une fierté de parler leur langue, malgré son imperfection aux yeux de la norme. Ainsi, on trouve de plus en plus de dictionnaires qui rendent compte de la réalité des gens de différents groupes de parlants français (argot de France [photo ci-dessus], français québécois, français d’Acadie [photo ci-dessous] ou de la Louisiane [photo ci-dessus]). De belles langues, encore vivantes et toujours d’actualité.

Avec le temps, j’ai acheté des dicos répertoriant plusieurs de ces langages on pourrait dire « underground ». Et lorsque je pense à un mot de mon enfance qu’on n’entend plus souvent, je vais voir dans les dicos de français classiques que je possède s’il s’y trouve. Des fois il y apparaît, souvent avec la mention « vieilli » ou « anglicisme » (à ne pas utiliser dans les textes officiels), et parfois il n’y est tout simplement pas répertorié.

Et c’est là que les dicos régionaux ou d’argot sont utiles, car on peut y trouver ce qu’on cherche. Ça permet de saisir toutes les subtilités d’un texte et, en plus, ça « déniaise ».
